  • Eating Crow was originally intended to air on March 19, 2016, but Cartoon Network replaced it with Teen Titans Go! at the last minute; Boomerang also replaced what would've been their encore showing with a rerun of Gremlin on a Plane. Instead, it was briefly released on Cartoon Network's website, as well as on Xfinity.
  • "Eating crow" is an American colloquial idiom, meaning humiliation by admitting wrongness or having been proven wrong after taking a strong position. Crow is presumably foul-tasting in the same way that being proven wrong might be emotionally hard to swallow.


Cultural references

  • A farmer and wife at the farmer's market resemble those in the American Gothic painting.
  • Shaggy and Scooby fool the scarecrow into going down a fake yellow brick road like in the MGM film, The Wizard of Oz.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Colonel Jerkey is now spelled "Colonel Jerky" (which may be correct, but not consistent).
  • "Farmers' market" is misspelled as "Farmer's market."
  • Jonathan's name is also spelled "Johnathan" on the the surveyor's map, when it was already spelled the former's own produce stand banner and later in the end credits.
